Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Carlson Restaurants full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Like any restaurant job, okay way to make decent money while your in high school or college.

Cons

Bad work environment. Poor management. Bad hours.

Advice to Management

Hire people with Business Degrees to run the restaurants, not Culinary certificates. The store I worked for had absolutely no strategic management, and they made unintelligent decisions that drove the store I worked at into the ground. Terrible work environment. Sad, because the place used to be a great place to work; now, I'm looking forward to getting out as soon as possible!

    Pros

    Lots of time off, good company ethics flex schedule, good employee screening process, benefits first day, freindy support team

    Cons

    Desperate, dying brand that has seen it's day. Too many coupons bring in bad crowd to have to deal with, complicated, senseless menu

    Advice to Management

    Sell off units to franchisees, go back to basics with menu, stop trying to be fancy restaurant and be who you were

    Pros

    They have fair pay with bonus potential, generous time off and little supervision which provides flexibility to run errands during the day. They also provide restaurant discounts.

    Cons

    Culture can sometimes be corny, management staff is not the most competent, job tasks are not challenging and the most qualified people are not always rewarded.
